    An amendment is what many Republicans are working to pass. A Constitutional Amendment supersedes & invalidates the Supreme Court's decision, and makes further gay marriage cases impossible. The Court is bound to follow the Constitution, with its amendments, and so the Court cannot overturn an anti-same-sex amendment, nor fail to enforce its dictates.

    But what the 6th Circuit must decide, and SCOTUS if this case proceeds that far, isn't strictly a same-sex issue. It's a more basic question of whether an elected official, who voluntarily sought the office, can refuse to perform prescribed duties based on religious exception.

    To rule in favor of this clerk would set a dangerous precedent. Can ANY elected official choose what laws to enforce, and what laws to ignore? In many US counties the Sheriff is elected. So are Governors. Are none of them bound by laws, if they claim a religious exemption? Should they do what their own church dictates, forcing the rest of us to comply with that theology?

    And there are countless other examples throughout the US of elected officials who administer the law. We would have confusion & anarchy if this Kentucky clerk prevails.

    The 6th circuit court addresses her problem, tells her to do her job and go away:
